Chatter Box

By From the November 2013 issue

EVERY FRIDAY I love to tune in to the PBS NewsHour to catch David Brooks (supposedly) representing the right in an exchange about the week’s top stories. He was in especially good form four days into the October shutdown, if you enjoy mealy mouthedness. For those who haven’t followed his career since his years as a solid neoconservative Reaganite, this may come as a shock. And to be fair, David generally remains friendly and witty through it all. But my gosh, I’ve never seen him so uneasy and status-minded. Just to bring you up to date, he doesn’t like the Tea Party and he doesn’t like Ted Cruz. The rest is self-explanatory.
